So that was for testing, now I go on with the story.

We went to mongolia and started 26 may.

The plan was to follow this route.

We drove from holland to Tsechie in one time and had terrible rain at the and of the day. We saw a hotel but couldnot get a room because it was for "guests". And indeed in the rain there where a lot of girls waiting for guests. The next day we did some good driving in the iron mountains.


That evening we slept in the Oekraine but a lot more to the north because the border was closed for 3 day's and we had to drive to another crossing. We saw this big old Castle along that road.

In the Oekraine roads where becomming more bad and the sidecars shock which was specially ordered for the job and cost about 600 dollar was already leaking. Not a good thing. We saw this monument and in the Karpaten it was wery good driving and eating shaslik.

As you see on the map we drove around armenia ( dangerous and corrupt) to the Krimea to cross the border by ferry to russia.

This is our first camp in warm and perfect weather.

We had to upload our blog and in Odessa two guy's jumped into the sidecar to show us the way. The police was laughing also. From Odessa we went more east and had our camp site on the terrain of a girls camp who came the next day . Water is 28 degrees and the air 26!!!
